This therapy was the main reason the Charity was formed in 1983; a therapy which was not available anywhere else in the area for M.S. sufferers.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (referred to as HBOT) is recognised worldwide as an aid in reducing the recovery period of many injuries and also in relieving symptoms of many ailments.
How does Oxygen Therapy work?
Oxygen is the healing element in the atmosphere and breathing 100% oxygen under pressure allows the extra oxygen to be absorbed into the tissue. This repairs the damaged tissue before it becomes scarred. It is the scar tissue which prevents messages getting from the brain to the limbs etc. causing disability.
What does Oxygen Therapy involve?
How often do I need to have this therapy?
It is necessary to receive at least 15 one-hour sessions over a three week period initially. Thereafter top-up sessions are usually once a week (dependant on condition to be treated).
What other conditions does HBOT treat?
